Pele Proven Wrong ... Predictably

It's not really news, I know. But once again, Pele's pronouncement that UEFA president Michel Platini might run against FIFA president Sepp Blatter is wide of the mark. Pele really is pathetic with his football-related predictions.

Although technically there is still time for Platini to make an announcement to run, if he so wishes (since the FIFA presidential election takes place on 1 June 2011), it is highly unlikely that he will do so especially since the AFC president Mohamed Bin Hammam has just announced that he will be running against Blatter (Bin Hammam to stand against Blatter in Fifa election).

If only Pele would use his amazing powers for the good of the game (FIFA's not-so-shoddy slogan)!
